I don't really want the freebie router, but am feeling creative and want to join in the fun.

 

 

I was fortunate enough that some ethernet wiring came with the house. Less fortunate that its kind of a mess and doesn't really go exactly where I need it to. Replacing it is on the - very long - project list. As a result my network isn't exactly optimised at the moment.

 

Vodafone Cisco cable modem to Netgear Nighthawk that is currently demasted/wifi switched off. Hanging off that are a few megabit devices, a printer, Siemens Gigaset VOIP phone and a RPi that doesn't have a particularly fixed use at the moment. There's also a TP Link POE switch running two Cambium E400 WAPs (hence demasting the Nighthawk). They're the crown jewels of my network. They run two VLANs, one for IOT/home automation stuff - currently just some LIFX bulbs but I have plans. Oh so many plans. The other wifi VLAN has lots of (far too many) notebooks, phones, tablets, kindles and general miscellania. There's also a WD Mycloud NAS on the gigabit switch. Finally, I have another small megabit switch behind the TV running both the TV and a Roku box - there's only one ethernet cable to the TV unfortunately.

Tp-link wr941nd running dd-wrt, really long in the tooth now, struggling with new UFB install, managed to get the vlan tagging working, for the most part it works but wifi is below par. And its slow. Needing to upgrade. Connect 2 tablets 2 phones , 2 laptops, printer, smart tv, voip ata, dishtv t2200, chromecast. A new router would really fit the bill.

@mdf you're disqualified anyway because I already offered it back ;)

 

Just to join in the fun here a bit too:

Protip: Use an Icecream container to manage your cable and plug-pack mess :) Yes, I know, potential fire risk however the plug packs hardly get hot enough for any concern. I also think I need a new switch with more? ports... Might be running out soon.

 

Also edit (like 50x or something...) @freitasm it'll be awesome if you could fix PNG transparency on the Geekzone image uploader - no biggie!

I have a Belkin Double N Plus.  Works quite well.  Serves laptop and a number of mobile phones.  Also can serve a couple of PC but they are usually wired.
